After a hiatus of almost over a month I finally had my teach India session today with the kids…
The NGO tried to get better organized and gave a set of questions and structure to the entire session…..well since I am not a structured person…I could not particularly follow the structure and I had my own little agenda with the kids…and my agenda was to “Have Fun! And learn some English in the process.
I think my kids like me…. And that is cause I try to ensure they have fun and I attempt to make them feel special about sitting with me for a session..!
My trick is that I always take my kids for a walk after about 15- 20 minutes of the session….and because this small thing…all other kids sitting in the hall envy my kids….they wonder what do these people go out and do and they apparently have internal conversations about it!
My first session was ok types….for some reason I did not take the girls for a walk…
Second session was good….took the girls for a walk… and taught them English while walking around and looking at things… I then made them sit in the car…taught them English words and sentences around the car…and spend the rest of the session repeating what we learnt! This was overall the best session….and I think it was quite productive!
Third Session was again ok types…there were less children and I got some new kids….with new kids…it takes some time to break the ice…and inherently if they are shy types…but overall I managed to break the ice…lets see if the same set of kids comeback next week..
PS: I am gonna miss the session next weekL
